Is your program listed in the National Literacy Directory?

Are you familiar with the National Literacy Directory? Funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and managed by NCFL, the National Literacy Directory is a valuable online resource designed to connect the literacy community with potential students, potential volunteers and each other.

Working in conjunction with a toll-free number operated by ProLiteracy, the National Literacy Directory refers people to literacy programs in their area according to the specific literacy services they need. This repository of programs is searchable by zip code, city/state or type of program. In addition, both the website and the toll-free operators are available in Spanish.

The web-based directory, available at, contains more than 10,000 listings of programs that offer literacy services, including adult basic education, GED® preparation, English as a second language (ESL), math, family literacy, technology, as well as official GED testing centers. It’s also a great resource to help connect literacy programs with people interested in volunteering with a program.

Information from the directory also can be accessed by calling 1-877-38YOURGED, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to get a local program referral in English and Spanish.
